When our friends Bryan & Evan (hey, boys!) got us a bottle of Roku Gin as a housewarming present, our lack of good gin experiences had us timid. In our heads, gin was just Pinesol that could also get you drunk? Because the gift was so thoughtful (and we trust those boys), we decided that we were going to find a way to love gin. Spoiler: it is now one of our favorite liquors.
